My piece of fabric that I had used for a lining was nice and slick-so that the laptop would slide in and out easily and I thought I had it made but now that I was finished the material was disintegrating before my eyes. Both side seams just fell apart and the place where I had put the strap was already eaten away just from the pressure of the flap moving. I was absolutely heartbroken.HUMMM? So, I guess my buzzing along - didn't buz so well. Since I had used a vinyl for my main fabric I think it would be very difficult to tear it apart and not wear out the holes from the first stitching. Shoot, O well, maybe it was not a lost cause- I sure did exercise my brain and they say that is so good for you. ~smile.
I thought I might add , just in case some of you have not visited : http://www.e-patternscentral.com/list.html?cat_id=145&source=EUIE6AH - that they have some interesting sewing patterns for sale at decent prices.I thought since Christmas is barreling down on us that we all can use inspiration.
